In the age of Pinterest and online message boards, ‘Do-It-Yourself’ learning has become easier and easier to tackle—yet not necessarily easier to complete. While such DIY tools and procedures are more accessible thanks to the internet, those very screens can oftentimes be the cause of frustration when projects just aren’t turning out the way we want. An in-person aid and learning guide can sometimes make the difference between a finished project we want to flaunt or hide.
Enter, A Lady and Her Tools.
Located in the literal heart of downtown Oswego on Main St., this DIY woodworking workshop offers women (and men) the chance to roll their shirtsleeves up and get down to creating. Offering little to a lot of assistance, depending on one’s comfortability, the workers at ALAHT give participants the opportunity to create a wood piece central to their home’s design—one that is functional and durable, but equally created with the individual’s own hands and style. Offering a variety of paints and stains (you can even bring your own!), projects that can be created in their range of 1-4 hour sessions include a kitchen island, bar cart, shelf ladder, bench, décor sign, sofa table, bedside table, and more.
For those who take pride in DIY creations but similarly want a project that is sustainable, make A Lady and Her Tools your next stop for a friend’s weekend, date night, or solo getaway.
